Veteran reporter Suzy Kolber has made quite the classy gesture in honor of the Buffalo Bills trainer who saved Damar Hamlin’s life on the field at the Paycor Stadium two Mondays ago.
Hamlin, who has made a full recovery after suffering a cardiac arrest during an MNF fixture between the Bucs and Cincinnati Bengals, could have died right then and there after a collision with Tee Higgins. However, the quick reaction from first responders ensured he left the stadium in a good enough condition to be nursed back to consciousness.
The main person responsible for this heroic act was identified as Denny Kellington in the aftermath of the scare.
Kolber, meanwhile, was covering the whole thing alongside Adam Schefter and Booger McFarland. It’s certainly a situation she will hope to avoid for the rest of her career, given the gravity.
Of course, the night could have been a lot worse if not for Kellington’s actions, which is why the reporter has saved an MVP vote for the trainer.
That is according to Rob Maadi of the Associated Press, who has revealed that Kolber put in a fifth-place vote for Kellington.
“This was the first year we – the AP – required voters to select a top 5 for MVP with a weighted point system,” Maadi added. “Suzy’s beautiful gesture to acknowledge Denny had no impact on the top 5 finishers.”
That’s quite a gesture from Suzy, one Kellington will no doubt appreciate. Even more importantly, he will live in the knowledge that he is responsible for saving a young man’s life.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
